i have a LG G PRO LITE DUAL ( lg g pro lite D686 ) that doesn't have FRENCH as one of the system language ( when you go to settings....>language & input .....> .... there is no option for french, and as a result, i CANNOT change the phone system language to french. i've tried all sort of apps ( locale text, morelocale2, text and locale, etc etc etc ) the only thing that happened was that part of the phone was changed to french, but not the system language. the majority of it is still in english.

I was told that the ONLY way i would be able to add/install/get french as a language on the phone is to either

1- CHANGE THE OPERATING SYSYTEM. the one on my phone is android 4.1.2. i was told that some operating systems like 4.2.2, or 4.4, and even 4.0.2, which i currently have on my htc phone come with french as part of the system language.

or

2- install some kind of custom ROM.

I would really appreciate it if someone out there could help me with either one of those options since I have no clue how to go about accomplishng any of these things, or if there is another way i can get french on my phone, please let me know as well.

I would even consider making a small donation, if you have paypal to thank you for your time.

some basic info about the phone:

its brand new, unlocked and unused, so i dont have to worry about backing up any data whatsoever.. i plan on shipping it to a french speaking country, which is why i absolutely MUST change it to french.
its an LG G PRO LITE DUAL phone
android version 4.1.2
and its already been rooted.

please help.

Looks like you might just be out of luck. There doesn't seem to be any development for that phone. Pretty sure the bootloader is locked meaning you can't install a custom recovery = no custom roms. Doesn't seem to be enough interest in the phone by developers to try any work arounds. Most likely because it is MTK based instead of their more normal Snapdragon processor phones.
